Description

If there's one thing worse than a crooked cop on your heels then it's a whole unit of them. A fistful of people are murdered, fifteen million dollars is stolen and detective Tom Bishop is stuck in the middle. When he hits the street, every clue points in the same direction - his colleagues in a police department demoralised by cutbacks and scandals. Hunted, alone and with no place left to turn, Bishop embarks on a hellish journey down into the gutters where right and wrong quickly become twisted and problems are solved with gunfire and bloodshed. Over the next two days, Tom Bishop will be cornered. He will be beaten. He will bust into prison. He will shoot at police. He will team up with violent criminals. He will become one of them. He will break every rule in the book, chasing a lead nobody else will go near down a rabbit hole of corruption, murder and buried secrets. Will Bishop become the very monster he set out to destroy? LONGLISTED FOR BEST FIRST FICTION, 2013 NED KELLY AWARDS "Dark City Blue is a freight train of a thriller crashing through some madhouse city night while a bomb's ticking down to zero.
It's the cage fighting equivalent of a police procedural: violent, gaudy, and packing heat." - Trent Jamieson, author of the Death Works trilogy " ...noir on No-Doz ..." - Fair Dinkum Crime

About Luke Preston

Luke spent most of his twenties as a freelance writer and listening to rock 'n roll. He drinks heavily on occasion, is a half decent musician and his idea of a good time involves a jukebox designed to bleed ears. He writes in cafes, bars and in parking lots on the back of old fuel receipts and cigarette packets. He doesn't believe in writers block or in the magic bullet theory and his favorite album is Highway to Hell. He likes bad traffic, noisy neighbors, cheap beer, loud bars and has been occasionally known to howl at the moon.
